After I asked last Monday about what your Booster Gold shrines looked like, Aaron Hale got in touch with me via Facebook. His office is like a museum for Booster Gold original art!
Check out these pics of some of his framed pieces. (Click any for a larger image.)

Aaron, I bow down to you. Thanks so much for sharing.

We know that Booster Gold will be returning to the DCU this December in Action Comics #993 and #994. We know that the book will be written by Dan Jurgens. What we don't know is who will be drawing it.
The solicitations released earlier this week repeat last week's announcement that the art team on those books will be Brett Booth (Teen Titans) and Joe Prado (Justice League). However, Booth has repeatedly denied via Twitter that he is involved.
Does this mean that Prado will be carrying the load solo? Will there be a different artist altogether on the book? Who would you like to see? Let's put it to a vote!
This week's poll question: Who do you want to see drawing ACTION 993?

Sean Aitchison has written a think piece for CBR.com titled "Booster Gold Could Have Been The DCEU's Iron Man" in which he posits that, er, Booster Gold could have been the DCEU's Iron Man, by which he means that Booster would have been a good starting point to introduce audiences to the DC cinematic universe.
As a superhero who's from the future, Booster Gold's time traveler status could serve a greater purpose for the DCEU. We've already established that Booster would have made a great, low-stakes superhero to launch the DCEU franchise due to his similarities to Iron Man. However, there is something that Booster could have done for the DCEU that even Iron Man didn’t accomplish: Setting up the future, literally.
Obviously this didn't happen, and it's too late to happen now. But it sure is fun to think about.
And while we're on the subject of Booster Gold movies, you might want to check out Usama Massod's article at MoviePilot.com, "Everyone Knows The DCEU Is In Crisis — But Whatever Happened To The Standalone Booster Gold Movie We All Forgot About?" in which he discusses, er, whatever happened to the standalone Booster Gold movie that we have definitely NOT forgotten about. Short answer: no one knows.
